The government’s web page on distracted driving points out that 3,179 people were killed, and more than 431,000 were injured as a result of distracted driving in 2014. Those figures place the problem second only to drunk driving, which killed 9,967 people during the same year, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The leading causes of distracted driving include texting, talking on a mobile phone, adjusting an electronic device such as a car radio or CD player, eating or drinking, or even watching a video. The things that some people will do when they should be paying attention to the road can be mind numbing.

Operating a nearly two-ton motor vehicle at speeds up to 65 miles an hour on the road with other vehicles is no joke. Often things happen on the road that requires split-second reactions to avoid. The act of taking one’s attention off the road even for a second can lead to a crash that will render your vehicle a twisted mass of metal and you and your passengers mangled flesh, dead or seriously injured.

To avoid distracted drivingLakewoods Insurance Partners in Ham Lake, MNsuggests a couple of common-sense procedures.

Have a passenger attend to fiddling with electronics, including using the phone, texting people, and adjusting the radio, CD player, or GPS. Anyone who calls you while you are on the road can wait to speak to you directly when you have reached your destination. If the call is urgent, pull over to the side of the road.

Do not eat, drink, watch a video, or do anything that distracts you from driving. It can wait.

Anyone can make one:
For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

The writer can show their personality:
In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience—the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

You can make money:

Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

It allows people to craft better thoughts:
Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it’s much better to see people’s thought process in a well-written blog post.

You can establish a community:
Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

Good for SEO:
Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

It brings people back to your site:

If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

It’s free:
It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there’s nothing to stop you.

You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!
